"When it comes to natives you want there to be a clean seed bed with no weed competition. The seed needs to be planted no deeper than ¼ inch deep, it will not germinate if planted any deeper. On top of the soil is better than being too deep. Also, we do not recommend tilling the soil at all. Each time you disturb the soil you expose new weed seeds that will come in quickly and out compete the natives. You can do a dormant planting in the fall after your first hard killing frost or wait until early spring."   

 

For places on the mountain where people will only "throw" their seed on their property, as long as it gets good seed to soil contact and there isn’t a lot of competition it should be fine.
